Acrobat Pinot Gris Oregon White Wine
Acrobat wines are the result of determination to handcraft Oregon Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris of the highest quality. At the heart of these wines is the love of pairing an honest wine with casual meals and gatherings. Acrobat should always be an effortless selection – a wine that consistently pairs in every way with our lives. Acrobat is artfully crafted in the gorgeous hills and valleys of western Oregon, with an eye on sustainable winemaking practices. A light-gold hue in color, the 2017 Acrobat Pinot Gris shines through with bright, crisp flavors. Rose petal elements on the nose highlight balanced citrus components of lemon and grapefruit. Following the nose are flavors of fresh lime, lemon zest, and green apple. These mingle on the mid-palate, rounding out a medium bodied mouthfeel with a refreshing, bright finish. The 2017 vintage was fermented in 100% stainless steel tanks, which were temperature controlled to maximize fruit character. This wine benefited from sur lie aging for 3 months prior to bottling. The 2017 vintage began with a colder than average winter, with multiple snowstorms. Thankfully, Spring saw a return to normal with bud break taking place in April. As Summer approached, the classic warm days and cool nights made for ideal growing conditions without any major heat waves. During the harvest we received less than average rainfall, which allowed for nearly perfect harvesting conditions.
